THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The response of V S Achuthanandan in not taking over the charge of Administrative Reforms Commission (ARC) at a time when the politburo meet is to be convened tomorrow, has drawn public attention.
When reporters asked him why he has not taken over the post, he said that you should ask those who made the appointment. Let them say. He kept mum when asked that the chief minister has stated that he has assumed charge.
A blatant corruption has been exposed by the vigilance probe against K Babu, he said.
Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan had yesterday stated that VS had assumed power on August 18. However, VS dismissed it. However, it is heard that VS is deliberately not taking charge due to the displeasure on certain things regarding his official residence and his inclusion in the party secretariat.
The politburo to be convened tomorrow is the first one after he was appointed the chairperson of ARC. His response and stand would be a discussion in the meet tomorrow. The party state leadership will make their stand clear.
